Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2014
Wow! I am IN LOVE! Since I am a peanut butter freak and love all things peanut butter, I went in search of a peanut butter frosting recipe to frost my delicious Texas Sheath Cake I was going to bake. I didn't want an icing kind of thing, I wanted a nice fluffy, totally peanut butter tasting frosting and I am so glad I found this! I looked at several different recipes before deciding this one looked more to my liking. I am not a fan of sickening sweet frosting and usually no matter what recipe I use, I never put in the full amount of powdered sugar. Even with this recipe, I didn't use the full amount. But here's the kicker. I only had Laura Scudder's Natural Peanut Butter, the kind you have to stir because it separates. Not caring if it came out more dense, I went ahead and used it and my frosting came out fluffy and delicious! I'm wondering if the people who complained about the frosting being greasy only mixed the ingredients together. I used my old hand held beaters and put it on high and whipped the heck out of. As soon as I poured the cream into it (I used cream instead of milk), it started to look more fluffy. I rough guessed at the amount of cream I put in and then started adding the powdered sugar. It just beat up so nicely and as soon as it was sweet enough for me, I stopped whipping it and frosted my cake. I thoroughly enjoyed licking off the beaters and cleaning out the remnants of the bowl. Addicting, delicious and I'll be making this forever more.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2014
Since I had split pea soup going in the crock pot for dinner tonight, I was thinking about how good cornbread bread would be with it, so as soon as I got home from work, I searched for a moist cornbread recipe and found this one. Didn't have any buttermilk, so I used half sour cream & half milk. I also cut the sugar down a little and added hunks of cheese to it. I loved it! Good recipe! I do not care for dry cornbread and this was nice & moist. Thanks, Bethany!

Great Pumpkin Dessert

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2013
I read some of the suggestions shared for this recipe, so I added a full cup of butter, and like some others had done, I cut the butter into the cake mix instead of melting it. I also added cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, ground ginger and cloves to the cake mix. The house smelled absolutely heavenly while baking and really brought the Autumn season to life. It is delicious and my whole family keeps digging a spoon into it every time they pass through the kitchen. I am going to have to put it out of sight to keep them out of it. Thanks for the recipe, Nancy!

Buttermilk Ranch Cheeseball

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
I just made this recipe for our cozy New Year's Eve tomorrow night and for our New Year's Day party. I did add a few things like some others suggested. I very rarely make a recipe without tweaking it in some way, so I hope no offense to Castoways, who posted the original recipe. For starters, I doubled the recipe. With that in mind, I added in 2 tablespoons of dried onions, a teaspoon of garlic powder, fresh ground pepper and roughly 4 teaspoons Worchestershire sauce, maybe more. The worchestershire sauce really completed this recipe. It added that little extra something that I thought it needed. I made 2 logs and then rolled them in toasted pecans. This made a delicious cheese spread and is exactly what I was looking for. My family will go nuts over it. I'll be using this recipe again. Thank you so much!

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
These were so good and so simple to put together. Perfect easy dessert for a cold winter night. I've also used peaches and pears. I usually use Ginger Ale as that's normally the kind of soda I have on hand. Whole family loves them!

Peanut Butter Pie VII

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
The recipe I have is a little different, mine calling for 4 egg yokes, but I added 1/4 cup peanut butter to the custard after it was cooked to give it more of a peanut butter taste. It was delicious! I also do not like meringue at all, so I used whipped cream (can use cool whip) to top the pie with and then sprinked the peanut butter/confectioners sugar on top. It was out of this world! If you are a peanut butter lover like I am, you will love this pie! Also, I made my pie with a home made graham cracker crust. This pie is addicting!

Hawaiian Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
Just made this recipe yesterday and the first loaf was gone in no time! This is a delicious recipe, even without the maraschino cherries that I left out. Excellent tasting, addicting, hard to leave alone banana bread that I'm sure we'll fight over to the last crumb. Thanks for a such a yummy recipe, Saundra!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Awesome cookies! I love soft, chewy peanut butter cookies and the oatmeal in these cookies really made them extra good. I made half the batch as is and the second half I added peanut butter chips and chocolate chips. I also added some extra oatmeal, which didn't hurt them at all. They are a hit and my whole family loves them. Thanks so much!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
I had not had pancakes in a long, long time, so I went searching for a recipe and decided on this one. They were wonderful! One bite and my dad made a loud, "Mmmmmm!" I added a few chocolate chips to my daughter's and she loves them, too. Really enjoyed these pancakes and will definitely make them again. Thanks so much, Eugene.

Hamburger Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
I gave this recipe 3 stars because as it is, it's fair. I doctored it up and it turned out really good. I used 5 med-large potatoes and cooked them in the microwave until they were done. Once cooled, I peeled and thinly sliced them. I fried the hamburger with onions and fresh garlic, added lots of pepper, Mrs. Dash, basil, beef bouillion and half a head of cabbage, roughly diced. I mixed the cream of mushroom soup with milk, sour cream, mexican cheese dip, pepper, beef bouillion, onion flakes, garlic, chili powder and Mrs. Dash. Inbetween layers of potatoes and meat mixture, I added lots of cheese and the sauce. Baked it 1 hour and 10 minutes at 375. It turned out pretty good!

Kosher Salt Encrusted Prime Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2005
I baked mine at a higher temperature, but ours turned out really good. I coated the meat with kosher salt, fresh cracked pepper and fresh garlic and then wrapped the meat up plastic wrap over-night. Would definitely make again. I will also try this with other kinds of roasts. It was a little salty on the ends for my parents, but otherwise very good. You've made me unafraid to make Prime Rib now! Thanks for a good recipe, Holly.

Oatmeal Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2005
Wow, these cookies are really good! I doubled the recipe because in our family, the first dozen is gone right off the bat and the original recipe said it made 2 to 3 dozen...not nearly enough for us. I used parchment paper like others said to do, and I could tell they would stick if you didn't. I scraped the melted toffee off the spatula after each batch because if I didn't, it would mess up the next batch of cookies. Also, even though I doubled the recipe, I only used an 8 oz bag of toffee bits and that seemed to be enough. I also added in a small amouth of dark chocolate chips. And, as another reviewer said, I added a small amount of butter flavored crisco in with real butter to make softer cookies. The flavor of these cookies is wonderful and I'll definitely be making these again! Thanks for such an awesome recipe, Lori!

Nut Goody Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2005
This is an excellent chocolate fix for my family when we want a quick little something for dessert. I've used cashews, almonds, peanuts and pecans in this recipe but my personal favorite is the cashews! I made these for my daughter's school Easter party last year and the kids loved it!

Swiss Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2005
I've made a few changes. Instead of 1/4 cup milk, I use a full soup can of liquid. I fill the can about 3/4 of the way with milk and then add dry cooking sherry to fill the can the rest of the way. This gives it a wonderful flavor and extra creamy sauce! I also sautee onions and mushrooms in a little butter and put that over the cheese before I pour the sauce on. It's a very good recipe and my family loves it!

Rosie's Bok Choy Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2004
Although I changed things up a bit, I absolutely love this recipe! Instead of bok choy, I used green leaf lettuce and romaine. Didn't have sesame seeds, so omited that. Added more toasted almonds and added grilled chicken from the night before. Wow! We're fighting over who gets the last helping! The dressing in this dish is out of this world!

Babe Ruth Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2002
These were good, but they did turn out kinda soggy. Not quite what I was looking for. If I try these again, I will probably cook the mixture longer and add more cereal. It was very easy to make, though.

Deeeelicious Vidalia Dressing

Reviewed: May 15, 2002
This recipe was very tasty! I used a red onion instead and it gave the salad dressing such a pretty pink color. I also substituted Splenda for the sugar and it made the recipe sugar-free and low-carb, just perfect for the low-carb diet I'm on. Thank you, Dawn. It's a great recipe! :o)

Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2002
This was the first Key Lime Pie I've ever made and it turned out really good. My 5 year old daughter just loved it! So did everyone else. I added a few drops of green food coloring, too. Very pretty pie, until my daughter stuck her fingers in it to taste it! Thanks Irene! Great recipe! By the way, Irene, are you by any chance related to Leonardo DiCaprio?

Quacker Jack

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2001
This was really good popcorn. I didn't bake it as long as it called for, but it turned out just fine. Very tasty! I think there might be an error in the listing of 2 cups of Oil...I did NOT use that much oil to pop the popcorn in. I used my Stir-Crazy popper instead of using a pot to pop it in, and 1 cup of unpopped popcorn made plenty. I also added a teaspoon a vanilla when I added the baking soda. Thanks Yvonne...you've given me something new to make now. :O)
